Wrapping it Up and Making it Pretty ... #1

With most of my holiday shopping behind me, it's time to turn my attention to wrapping the gifts and making them look as pretty as I can with what I have on hand.

I enjoy wrapping gifts when I'm not rushed and by starting now, I'll have plenty of time to enjoy this task before gift giving day gets here or before any out of town gifts have to be mailed.

I thought I would share my 'gift wrapping' journey with you, here's what I've done thus far ...


I purchased these over sized cups on clearance last year after Christmas for $.50 each and put them in my gift trunk.  I took them out this week, filled them with individually wrapped candies, placed the candy filled cups inside clear cookie bags  that I had on hand and tied them up with ribbon I purchased on clearance for $.10/per roll after Christmas last year.  The bag of candy cost between $6 and $7 dollars at Sam's Club which made each gift (8 candy filled cups) just a little below $1.50 each.  

I'm using these 'cups' as part of my holiday decor until gift giving time arrives.  I'll be putting up a tree and then the rest of my decor will be my 'wrapped gifts.'  The wrapped gifts make our home look festive without being cluttered (when you have a small home, this is a concern) and then when gift giving season is over all I have to take down and put away is the tree.

Have you started wrapping gifts yet?  Do you use your 'wrapped gifts' as part of your  holiday decor?

Sewing Accomplishments: November 25th, 2015

On my sewing day this week, I did some Christmas sewing ... as in 'magic Christmas pillow cases' for my grandchildren kind of sewing.  






The theory is that when the little ones sleep on their 'magic pillow case' on Christmas Eve night, that they will go fast asleep!  

It's a nice thought ... at any rate though, these pillowcases are super cute and were made with lots of love by their grandmommie.
